3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I usually buy these by the German border. Itís black with a nice dark head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt and licorice and the mouthfeel is a bit thicker than the Draught and Original. The flavour has notes of bitter chocolate and licorice, and it has a nice bitterness. In the finish I also pick up some coffee notes. Itís nice!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Bottle from Swedish Systembolaget) Chocolate aroma, sweet as well. Look is black with a brown head, lasts long. Taste is sweet chocolate, but no surprises or anything interesting. Pretty much plain boring and sweet..

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Courtesy of oh6gdx. Thanks, Pat. Aroma is roasty and (to my suprise) slightly smoky, smelling a bit like a freshly stamped campfire still covered in settling dirt and dust. Body is flat black and holds a mostly lasting thumb thick tan head. Tastes thinner than the Guinness brewed in Canada and has some of that slight smoke in the flavor echoing the smell in the aroma. Lacks some of the dark fruit notes in the American version as well. Drier and more abrupt in the finish.

UPDATED: OCT 5, 2006 one of the three beers I found on a new liquor store. I expected it to be better. A bit light and watery but the taste is pretty good.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Lightweight and watery compared to many stouts from micro brewers - despite this being "the original". Some coffee taste, but rather boring.
